The Harris County judiciary and Houston Bar Association presented the 2017 Harris County Bench Bar Pro Bono Awards to area law firms and an attorney for their service to local low-income residents. Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Nathan L. Hecht gave the keynote address at the May 3 event, which was held at the Harris County Civil Courthouse.

This year’s winners are:


  • Baker Botts – Large Firm
  • Morgan, Lewis & Bockius – Mid-size Firm
  • Trahan Dinn Kornegay Payne – Small Firm
  • Exxon Mobil Corporation Law Department – Corporation
  • Hannah D. Sibiski – Individual


The program was established not only to recognize outstanding pro bono work but also to encourage further legal services to low-income Harris County residents.
